    I really liked the movie. I just wish they would have showed him seeing his mother awake.

    It is not only enjoyable for its fun and wit, but also for being well-done as a period piece from the 50's.

    Perfect casting.....a fun movie to watch...wonder what they would've done with a bigger budget 'cause this was pretty decent.

    McGowan’s film isn’t just about following this boy’s private quest to accomplish the impossible. It is also about how he affects the other characters in the film.

    Even though it sprints along a well-trod path through familiar territory, Saint Ralph remains surprisingly compelling.

    Scott can invest just about any scene with heft and intelligence, but neither the material nor his co-star give him much help.
